I just love the way bunting looks when it’s applied as an applique to products rather than being used strictly as a party decoration. So when I ran across this sewing project for a Bunting Cosmetic Bag Tutorial, I simply couldn’t resist sharing it with you. After all, every girly girl has must have basics in her makeup ensemble, so a great makeup bag is prudent.
This tutorial comes to us from Just Another Hang Up Blog and produces a super cute bag that can be used for anything from makeup, to coins, to craft supplies. Make it your own through your fabric and color choices. You can get the skinny on how to craft this bag here. Then all you have to do is fill it up!
I have a specific list of “staples” that go in every makeup bag I have – those things that make their way into the travel bag even when the glitter eyeshadow stays at home. Here’s what I’ll be filling me pretty, new cosmetic bag with: Waterproof Mascara Remover from Green Beauty Cosmetics, mark. face xpert flawless touch makeup (foundation), mark. powder buff natural skin foundation, CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye Brightening Mascara (waterproof), Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Eyeliner, a brow and lash brush/comb combo, Revlon Powder Blush, Almay intense i-color powder shadow and CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain since my boyfriend can’t stand the feel of lipstick when I kiss him.
Speaking of makeup I’m always on the look out for new brands and types to try. After running across the beauty brand My Pretty Zombie on etsy, I’m psyched to add a few of their shadow to my wish list. Created by a gal who loves zombies almost as much as eyeshadow, she creates fun themed shadows named after things an old bruise, murder, black eye, gangrenous, scurvy, decay, nacreous alchemy, unicorn pee, and others. Don’t let the names fool you though. These shadows are pretty as a picture. Shop online with My Pretty Zombie.
So, what do you plan to fill your new cosmetic bag with? Or what do you plan to keep around in the old one even if the new one doesn’t quite make it to fruition?
